Differential cross sections for p p elastic scattering have been measured for very small momentum transfers at six different incident antiproton momenta in the range 3.7 to 6.2 GeV/c by the detection of recoil protons at scattering angles close to 90°. Forward scattering parameters σ T , b , and ϱ have been determined. For the ϱ-parameter, up to an order of magnitude higher level of precision has been achieved compared to that in earlier experiments. It is found that existing dispersion theory predictions are in disagreement with our results for the ϱ-parameter.

The E760 Collaboration performed an experiment in the Antiproton Accumulator at Fermilab to study the two photon decay of the ηc(1 1S0) charmonium state formed in p¯p annihilations. This resulted in a new measurement of the mass Mηc=2988.3−3.1+3.3 MeV/c2 and of the product B(ηc→p¯p)×Γ(ηc→γγ) =(8.1−2.0+2.9) eV. We performed a search for the process p¯p→ηc′(2 1S0)→γγ over a limited range of center-of-mass energies. Since no signal was observed, we derived upper limits on the product of branching ratios B(ηc′→p¯p)×B(ηc′→γγ) in the center-of-mass energy range 3584≤ √s ≤3624 MeV. We observed no signal for the nonresonant process p¯+p→γ+γ and obtain upper limits.
Cross sections for the reaction pp¯→e+e− have been measured at s=8.9,12.4, and 13.0 GeV2. The cross sections have been analyzed to obtain the proton electromagnetic form factors in the timelike region. We find that GM(q2)∝q−4αs2(q2) for q2≥5 (GeV/c)2.
